As a long-term owner of a store-front business, and as an experienced network marketer, I would like to make some comparisons of a conventional store-front type of business, to a home-based network marketing business.

You would want to considerrepparttar 139379 following: vDoes it have stability, or is it a risky new start-up venture? vHow hard will it be to acquire customers for my product or service? vHow long will it take to break even and then make a profit? vHow much time do I have to devote to this business? vIs there a mentor nearby who will teach merepparttar 139380 business? vAm I willing to stick with this even though there may be a number of obstacles to overcome & not everything goes right allrepparttar 139381 time?

Your list of questions could go on and on.
